SPICY 'ADULT' SWEETNESS

This 26 year old Speysider was matured in a refill butt and comes in at 55.1%

Flavour profile:  Spicy & sweet

Outturn:  583 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "Lots of fine sweetness on the nose – we found caramel wafers, toffee, nougat and dulce de leche, but sweet tobacco, marmalade and sugary espresso dregs gave depth to that sweetness; we also got hints of pepper, Airfix glue, wicker and wax. That spicy, ‘adult’ sweetness characterized the palate too – Crunchie bars, honeycomb, pain au chocolat, coffee fondant and crystallized ginger, with one or two earthier notes (pepper, wood, tequila). The reduced nose evoked cinnamon-dusted rice pudding and satay sauce, while the palate’s yummy chocolate gingers and Tia Maria got the thumbs up all round."

Drinking tip:  "With coffee and cake would be ideal"
